While listing to the scanner it will be interupted. When we look at the screen, it states "UHF Found". How do we get that from not happenign? It is really irratating while listening to something and then it stops because of that "UHF Found". Thanks

Hi, first, you can only listen to analog radios on this scanner, so if you local or state public servants went to digital, you are out of luck. You can still receive National Weather Service, most railroads, ham radio operators and any small town police and fire that have remained on analog VHF and UHF. Do a Google search and you can get the instruction book for the radio. As far as channels, search for Radio Reference dot com and search for your state and county. That will list the channels to enter into your radio. Good luck and have fun.
Please excuse me if I've already answered your question -- it sounds familiar. The RCA 16S400 is a 70's-vintage crystal based scanner that covers the VHF-Low, VHF-High, and UHF bands using frequency-specific crystals. It is not programmable, but rather requires one crystal for each frequency to be scanned/tuned. It uses Regency-type crystals which can usually be found on eBay at reasonable prices.
Its so easy to use you really don't need a manual for the Uniden BC142XL scanner.
Turn it on. Push the "MANUAL" button to stop it from scanning.
Push number 1, then push "MANUAL" again. This should leave you on
Using the keypad enter the frequency you want to monitor, then push
"E." Press "REVIEW" at anytime to see what frequency is programmed
there. If the review button flashes 000.0000 on the LED readout
display, you might be entering an invalid frequency. Refer to the list
of acceptable frequencies in the Frequency Range Bands below.
Push "MANUAL" to step to channel number two. Enter the frequency. Push
"E." Push "MANUAL" to step to channel three. Repeat this process until
all the (10) channels are full, or you've run out of frequencies to
Push "SCAN" to start automatically scanning the frequencies. The
radio will stop when it hears someone talking, and resume scanning two
seconds after the conversation has stopped.
Frequency Range Bands:
20 to 29.7 MHz (10 Meter "Ham" Band)
29.7 to 50 MHz (VHF Low Band)
50 to 54 MHz (6 Meter Amateur Band)
136 to 144 MHz (Military Land Mobile)
144 to 148 MHz (2 Meter "Ham" Band)
406 to 420 MHz (Federal Government Land Mobile)
420 to 450 MHz (70cm "Ham" Band)
450 to 470 MHz (UHF Standard Band)
470 to 512 MHz (UHF "T" Band

A good scanner? Hmm... too many to list. But the #1 on my list is a Realistic PRO-2006 gapless frequency scanner. This scanner has no limitations to what it can scan. It scans HF/FM/AM/VHF/UHF/Air/TAC/Marine VHF/GMRS/CB/SSB/USB/LSB/WX. Hell, it even scans the FM and AM bands (the music bands). It's frequency range is up in the 1300 MHz range and is probably the only scanner you'll ever need. If it's too pricey, my second recommendation is a Regency MX4000. The Regency MX4000 is a good little scanner with a 950MHz range. It is not gapless however. It has 20 Memory channels and scans AM/FM/UHF/VHF/Air/Marine VHF/Mobile Phone/WX bands. It may be hard to find one because Regency went out of business a while back, but if you do find one, it may be worth your while.
Do you have a list of correct freq's for your area? Make sure you have the scanner set on the correct mode (am/fm/ct/dc) for the freq's you have programmed. Each area of the country have their own individual freq. so their not stepping on each others transmission.
